SPORTS: Women's Soccer Drops Second Straight

by Michael Hadley

The Women's Soccer team lost their second game of the season 2-1 at Indiana State on Sunday afternoon.

Indiana State struck first in the match when freshman Marisa Windisch scored on set piece in the 26th minute, taking a header in the middle of the box and slipping it past IUPUI goalkeeper Giselle Guzman.

The teams went into the half with the scoreline of 1-0, but the Jaguars game out of the locker room with their guns blazing. Taylor Heidorn's goal in the 55th opened the scoring ledger for IUPUI in 2011. Heidorn had missed high on several attempt earlier in the half before finally putting one in the back in the net from 25 yards out on the right wing.

But the Sycamores weren't done yet. Just five minutes later Katrine Baker took a pass from Shelby Troyer and rocketed a shot from 30 yards out that got past second-half substitution Kristin Haseley. IUPUI tried their hardest to get back in the match, but when the final whistle blew it was Indiana State who had prevailed.

Heidorn lead the way on offense for the Jaguars, taking five shots and putting two on frame to add to her goal. Sarah Carlisle also had two shots on goal. Guzman had three saves and a goal against, and Haseley stopped four shots while allowing the one goal.

IUPUI plays next at home against Detroit in their home opener on August 26. Their following game, a match on August 28, will be broadcast on IUPUI Live - check for details on how to sign up for that service.

Final Line--
IUPUI 0 1 - 1
IN ST 1 1 - 2
